Suzie Card-Maker


I LOVE to create greeting cards. This is a place
for me to share some of my favorite cards with family,
fellow card-makers,and friends.
Update: Since I began this card-making blog in 2009, we have moved to a warm, sunny place, retired, and gotten very busy. Even though my love of making cards has not lessened, my time "for" card-making has diminished. I had actually considered taking down my blog because of my lack of time to make and post cards. Instead I will try to post more regularly with a variety of things. Please bear with me while I attempt to expand my topics.


Snowmen in October?

This might be one for our records, at least. This morning my husband and I picked up our daughter and grandson's new puppy from the kennel where she stayed over the weekend while we all made a quick trip to Kansas City for our nephew/godson's wedding reception. When we woke up this morning, there was ALOT of snow! Mike made the snowman while I walked the puppy whose name is Ginny! We think this was her first experience with snow. It is so fun to watch a puppy experience snow! By noon, my husband's valiant effort at making a great mid-October snowman began to slide off its foundation! Sure glad that we both had our cameras!


Our Sweet "Boys"

Since I am still working on all those Christmas cards, I don't have any new cards to post. Instead I thought I would post a recent pictures of our two grandsons! The big one loves having a "real cousin" and I think the little one will, too, once he knows what a "real cousin" means! Have a great weekend!


Our ministry is now working on Christmas cards. I am making 77 of this design. The cardstock in green and red is Bazzill. The white paper between is a shimmer paper. The candle stamp is one of the $1 stamps from Michael's. The ribbon is from my stash of ribbon! The embossed Christmas design on the red paper is done with a Cuttlebug embossing folder. I have all the parts cut out or punched out, the white and red papers adhered to each other, some adhered to the green card base, all the candle images stamped and punched out, all the green scalloped ovals punched, but need to "color" all the images! Better get back to work. :-)
